For the fourth straight football game, the Canyon View Falcons were able to score first on its opponent. They got on the board before many of the gathered fans could settle in their seats.
Once the running tandem of Brock Parry and Kolton Madsen got going, the Desert Hills Thunder were no match.
Parry and Madsen scored two touchdowns apiece on the ground, and the defending 3AA state champions did most of their work in the first half on the way to a convincing 55-7 rout over the Falcons on Sept. 22. Quarterback Noah Sewell added two touchdowns – one rushing, one passing – as the Thunder stayed on top of the Region 9 standings at 3-0, 5-1 overall
Parry found the end zone with two long runs, one from 25 yards in the first quarter and a 42-yarder in the second that helped push Desert Hills out to a 41-7 halftime lead.
Madsen did his work from short-range, scoring on a 2-yard run in the first and a 3-yard run in the second. Kyler Bergener scored the lone touchdown for Canyon View on a 44-yard run on the game’s opening drive.
Canyon View will travel again this Friday for a game at Dixie, the only other undefeated team in Region 9 play. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
